The Second Innings Of Life

June 25, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Ethan Trex compiled a list of 10 individuals who switched careers after the age of 50, and did well; giving hope to senior citizens everywhere. Some notable examples include:

  • Ronald Reagan. Perhaps the most fascinating success story of them all. He was an actor until he was first elected to public office at the age of 55.
  • Colonel Sanders. The beloved KFC icon ran a motel and restaurant joint, until the construction of an interstate threatened business. That’s when he created the Kentucky Fried Chicken.
  • Takichiro Mori was an economics professor until at 55 he became a real estate investor, putting his money into properties in Tokyo. He was the world’s richest man for a while although he never really got used to his fame.

To read more details about each of these individuals and to read the rest of the list which includes a man connected to decks of cards, a children books’ author, and a grandmother, click here.
